Try a major file since you seem to be having problems after the connection's been running for a while.
Download Battle for Wesnoth from SourceForge.net Open-source game, approximately the same filesize.
Turn-based tile-based fantasy-themed strategy game. That's the latest stable release.
Yea, I'm getting like 33kb/s but it is steadily rising. It's at 17.2mb/268mb
The thing is, when I'm using torrents even if it doesn't have that many seeds I get atleast a consistent 100kb/s (Opensource stuff, not illegal, if you're wondering).
I wasn't. All my stuff's legal too. <koff koff>
When that file's down try the SBF again. Never know, it might have kickstarted something. Of course, it's also quite likely that Megaupload is having issues today.
Yea. Youtube has also been exceptionally slow for me today. I'm living in NC, where snow is a rarity so it might just be messing Bellsouth up bad. I'm from NY aswell and always laugh at some people who overreact.
I love watching the news when people in Texas deal with a quarter inch of ice. Love seeing those 4x4 pickups with the offroad tires spin out and slam into telephone poles because the good ol' boys never learned the difference between driving on asphalt and ice.
Contact your ISP if they're still open and see if they're aware of a problem. That's utter BS.
